English as a Second Language (ESL)

Text content

Curriculum for International Students 

Our Kindergarten to 8th grade English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) program provides both individualized instruction and classroom integration opportunities. Non-english speaker students may spend most of  their school time with the ESL instructor completing school projects. Once more proficient, the teacher will help students integrate into their specific classrooms until they no longer need ESL support. We can tell many stories about the long-term friendships formed at ESL. It is great to witness the confidence shown by students who learn to speak English as a second language.

At MSOS we welcome different cultures and backgrounds.

“It’s been five years since my daughter first attended MSOS. She looked very nervous when she entered her classroom on her first day because she couldn’t speak English at all, but when I came to pick her up, I saw her surrounded by her classmates and teachers, having a great time. Since then, she has been enjoying attending MSOS everyday thanks to all the friendly teachers and her friends. I’m also grateful for the ESL class where students can gain their confidence in speaking English as well as reading and writing skills.”
日本からハワイへ来てすぐにMSOSへ入学し、当初全く英語を話せなかった娘が、5年間毎日楽しく登校できたのは、少人数のホームルーム、ESLでのサポート、いつも声をかけてくださる親切な先生方やクラスメイトのおかげです。特にESLの時間では少人数で発音、リーディング、ライティングの基礎を指導していただき、気づけば何の問題もなく通常の授業に参加し、更に自信を持って発言まで出来るようになっていました。休み時間に広くてきれいな芝生の上を楽しそうに走る姿を見て、この学校を選んで良かったなと感じています。
